Abstract

Nowadays Building Information Modelling (BIM) tools are widely used in the process of design and construction works for new building and renewals. Architects and engineers usually design the architectural characteristics without paying attention to other facilities such as Building Automation Control Networks (BACN) which are normally defined, developed and deployed after the building is finished by a third party company. Then the model of the building does not match with the final status as it is built. Taking advantage of the fact that IFC standard tries to cover the problematic of interchanging information among building model design software (interoperability), the standard will be used to automatically design and deployment of BACN (facing problematics related to geometry and location of devices) and its possibility to act on control facilities.
